BODY OF WORK: BRYAN GREEN
"Filmmaking, akin to every other form of storytelling or visual art, enables the artist to create their own universe and the viewer to see the world through their eyes. As a black filmmaker I feel it is that much more important for me to tell my story and the stories of my people to ensure that we are heard and remembered and not erased with the tides of time."

~ Bryan Oliver Green, 2022

Recurrence Plot: The Family Circle (USA, 2018, 16 mins) and
